Thomas Cook to shed more jobs at its Peterborough HQ



Thomas Cook is considering axing almost one in 10 jobs at its Peterborough office where up to 100 staff could be made redundant.

It said it has proposed some changes as part of plans announced in March to transform its UK retail businesses, and these will affect a number of roles in Peterborough.

Chief of tour operating Will Waggott said: "These proposals are part of our ongoing programme to drive greater efficiencies across the business, putting a rigorous focus on cost to ensure Thomas Cook is fit for the future.

"They have not been taken lightly and we are doing all we can to support our colleagues who are impacted through the consultation process."

It is understood the changes affect a number of departments and staff are being consulted.

Thomas Cook employs about 1,100 people in Peterborough. News of the potential job losses comes a day before the company announces the financial results for the first half of the year.
